  • “Globalist” versus “Nationalist”: Impact of 2016 U.S. Election on Indo-U.S.Relations
    By Piyush Kumar

    With a large part of the 2016 United States presidential election cycle being dominated by the major-party nominees appealing to concerns of the electorate at home, foreign policy seems to have taken a backseat, unseemingly at a time of intense global crises.

    It is an open secret that there is no altruism in foreign relations. Wherever there is convergence of interests, there would be deals happening between countries and the relationship would appear to be on the ascendent. On the other hand, wherever interests diverge, countries would become hostile to each other. It is all a game of circumstances and situations. India-US relations are no exception.
